Saying good by to “Hi”

3-2-09

We arrived at Hi-Corbett this morning at 6:30 and there were already a few players here. Today’s goal was simple.

Me, I’ve gotten so many autographs I’m starting to feel guilty. So I decided to get Jorge De La Rosa on one of the mini-bats and I also got Eric Young Jr. I’m saving my last mini-bat for Sal Fasano. Hopefully he’ll be at batting practice today.

I’m not real keen on taking pictures of players in the morning, but I did take a few.

Here’s a shot of Glenallen Hill. A few days ago when Andy and I and a group of autograph hounds hit him up for autographs, he asked us “What do you guys do with all those autographs?” The way he said it was funnny.

I’ll be out snagging baseballs and getting Sal’s autograph in the practice fields today until the start of the game against the Angels.

        Here are the autographed mini-bats and the Tulowitzki visor. We got it all done…D

As far as I know this will be my last home game at Hi-Corbett. From what they say the Rockies will be moving to a different training facility next year. I’m heading out now to get my tickets for todays game. Today were going to try to get some of the shaded seats. Yesterday’s sun has got me glowing a bit.

I’m going to miss this place. It’s so fan friendly and compared to other places it’s the best as far as I’m concerned. After the game today I head to Phoenix and I’ll be at my final Rockies game tomorrow against the Brewers at Maryvale Baseball Park.
